More Coffee, Please!

But don't let the title put you off if you're (gasp!) not a coffee drinker, because this fortnight at Shopping Our Stash, the challenge is called "Hot Beverages for Cold Nights" and we're making cards that feature ANY hot beverage, so you're still good to go with tea, cocoa, gluwein, warm milk, hot cider; I suppose one could even make a case for soup? I went with coffee, though, because it's my favorite.

I confess I was psyched when I saw this challenge, because I knew I had the awesome "Literary Caffeine-ations" Stamp Set my friend Becca Cruger designed for Stamplorations (she has her own line called Big Grins by Becca Cruger; just sayin'...) and I haven't used it in a while, which seemed like a shocking oversight... but perfect for SOS! Last week I also found a few stray sheets from Prima's Pretty Pale in the vaults at my lss, Paper Anthology, and since it's one of my alltime favorite paper collections, I obviously had to use that. I broke out my Stephanie Barnard coffee cup dies, a few miscellaneous Eyelet Outlet Flower Brads and some ancient burlap sunflowers. Et Voila! 

I thought this card was going to have more autumnal shades in it; but in the end, it wound up being just tans, browns and yellows with lots of white. So it may be disqualified from Stamplorations' October Theme and Photo Prompt Challenge, and I will completely understand. Their challenge did inspire me, though!

I hope you'll hop over to see what the SOS gang have made, I guarantee you'll find some inspiration there... I know I always do! ♥

  5. This is all kinds of fabulous! And you may have reminded me that I too, own that particular stamp set, and broke it out for my card. LOL!

    Also, this is just enough to be Autumnal themed, so you are good, IMHO. Thanks for linking up at STAMPlorations Theme & Photo Prompt challenge!
